Your participation is important and essential if we are to accomplish what God has called us to do. Please bring your pledge to church. You may walk it to the altar or drop it in the offertory plate.

This year's Campaign theme is "EPIC - Every Parishioner is Called". We are called to give because God made us, redeemed us in Christ, and sustains us in the Spirit. Every Pledge Is Counted.
